These black and Ivory wedding invitations caused all sorts of problems. First I couldn't find anyone selling black and Ivory card .
So I decided to make the card myself.
Then I hit another problem the card had to be a decent weight to ensure it wouldn't tear or curl outwards with the weight and tension of the ribbon and button pulling on it.
When I found what I thought was the perfect card......it wouldn't go through my printer.
Eventually I decide to try stampin' ups very vanilla card stock it worked a treat, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier.
I got through miles of ribbons . I was shocked at just how much ribbon these were taking and a bit annoyed at having to make several trips into town to buy more.
The next problem was the black card.
I wanted a heavier weight so that I could make a fairly sturdy box for these invites.
My usual supplier didn't have any , but it turned out that a colleague did!!! Bless you and Thank You Allison.
And here are the matching menu and place cards . .......Well some of them.
The menu looks slightly lighter in colour in this photo, but it is exactly the same colours as the place card.
